Re­port warns of ex­treme weather

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A newly pub­lished Euro­pean study on cli­mate showed that weather-re­lated dis­as­ters could kill some 152,000 peo­ple every year in Europe if cli­mate change is not curbed, and that heat waves would be the cause of 99 per­cent of those deaths. The study said that if no ac­tions are taken to cut green­house gas emis­sions and mit­i­gate the im­pact of ex­treme weather events, Europe will see 50 times more deaths per year be­tween 2071 and 2100 than in the 1981-2010 pe­riod.
